Is it conceivable that the euro could fail? Can the bureaucrats weather the storm, keeping dissent to the margins?

Speakers for this illuminating debate filmed at the Battle of Ideas include Philippe Legrain, advisor to Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission (speaking in a personal capacity); Simon Nixon, European editor, Wall Street Journal’s Heard on the Street column; author of The Credit Crunch: how safe is your money?; Bruno Waterfield, Brussels correspondent, Daily Telegraph; author of No Means No!
